Construction Management (BS)

Our four-year Construction Management program is designed to better meet the needs of the construction industry. With additional field experience, graduates will assume positions of superintendent, project manager, estimator, or field engineer in commercial, institutional, industrial, residential, or civil construction.

If you hold an associate’s degree from our Architectural & Building Engineering Technology, Civil & Environmental Engineering Technology, or Construction Management programs, but want to expand your knowledge and career options, this program is for you. Graduates of other similar programs may request a transcript review during the application process.

A student with a Bachelor of Science in Construction Management will be able to:

  • Demonstrate strong technical and problem-solving backgrounds for management level positions
  • Control or contribute to a profitable construction-related business
  • Adapt to technological and process changes in a rapidly developing field
  • Exhibit resiliency, lifelong learning, and a “no excuses” mentality
  • Create and implement a company safety plan
  • Create, estimate, condense, and graphically communicate Gantt, network diagram, and activity on node project management charts
  • Estimate and submit competitive construction bids
  • Manage a construction project, including materials and resources, from design phase to close out
  • Interpret construction drawings, specifications, and permits for implementation of best management practices
  • Properly lay out and site buildings, bridges, and roads from designs
  • Manage documentation for payments, inspections, as-built drawings, and progress submittals
  • Provide immediate first aid and life-saving care to other employees
  • Evaluate multiple choices in the means and methods of construction for fiscal decision-making and planning
